Term 2 Topic:
Poisonous potions, aromatic brews, vapour or a sticky goo… Welcome to the amazing world of potions!
This term, we’ll learn all about mysterious potions, building on our knowledge of solids, liquids and gases. Using our investigation skills we’ll explore the properties of liquids. We’ll also design fabulous bottles for magical potions. Becoming super scientists, we’ll investigate chemical reactions and states of matter. We’ll research the use of herbs in potions and the development of anaesthetic! It will be great fun to make chocolate hearts and bath bombs!
At the end of our topic, we’ll invite you to visit our class of potion masters. We’ll even make delicious potion treats for you to taste!
Help your child prepare for their project:
‘Double, double toil and trouble; fire burn and cauldron bubble.’ Do you have any interesting bottles or containers at home? Have a go at sketching them then think about what kind of potion could go inside it. What would the potion be used for? What would the label look like? Alternatively, you could try baking something new together, thinking about how the ingredients change when you mix and cook them.
